2018 Summer Young Writers' Workshop - June 25-29, 2018

Join us from June 24 to June 28 at Shenandoah University in the Bowman Building downtown for a week-long Writing Workshop complete with guest appearances by authors and intense workshops taught by our Teacher Consultants!  We welcome students entering 4th through 8th and 9th through 12th grades in the Fall to register here for this exciting event that will be held from 9 am until 2 pm. each day. 

Registration includes admission for the week's events and Project Write SWAG - a notebook, a pen, a t-shirt, and other surprises, plus a copy of the Student Anthology that will be published post-Institute! Space is limited this year, so please reserve your spot soon! 

Each day includes large group sessions, genre sessions, writing workshops, and lots of opportunity for creative writing growth.  In addition, our young writers will have the opportunity to conference one-on-one with our Teacher Consultants for personal feedback and revision.
